Government sources said the decision was taken a few days ago but the formal instructions took time. The Intelligence Bureau and the Central Board of Direct Taxes have been told to ascertain how the tapes — of phone conversations intercepted by the income tax department in 2009, with the approval of home secretary GK Pillai — were leaked earlier this year.
